Wild Ewes Woolery Newsletter -- November 13, 2020
Hi, stitchers!It certainly has looked like Fall, but has not felt like it! I am knitting my first pair of socks, so I have not had a pile of wool in my lap, which turned out to be a good choice! I'm working on the legs now, so KPKPKPKP until I run out of yarn. What has been your Fall project?Speaking of yarn, our first shipments of winter yarns have come in! We are well stocked with Berroco Vintage and Brown Sheep Company Lamb's Pride in worsted weight and many colors. We also received Urania by Lang Yarns and Wool Addicts Glory. We received several colors each of these two yarns with more to come. We are expecting blanks in a week or so in DK and fingering weights for more hand dyeing. If you weren't able to get any of our popular colorway, Lichen, we will be dyeing more!
Are you all thinking about who on your holiday gift-giving list is knit or crochet worthy? Have you picked a theme -- hats, fingerless gloves, cowls, scarves, shawlettes? We have kits for the I'm So Fancy, Lil Magic and Tobermory shawls, and Sweet Dreams shawlette. The Wonderland Yarns deSTITCHnation series has one skein projects that come with yarn, a pattern, a sticker and a post card. Small Business Saturday falls on November 28 this year. Since Maryland has tightened restrictions, and Anne Arundel County even more so, we will celebrate over the entire week following (i.e., through December 5). We spread it out so everyone does not have to feel compelled to come in on one day and we all can have a safer, socially distant shopping experience. Our "Online brand" sock yarn will be on sale for $4.99 per skein and all other sock yarns will be 10% off. If you haven't made socks before and would like some help, we are happy to oblige by appointment! If we have to quarantine again, do not be caught without enough yarn to keep you busy and sane! Please remember all of our inventory is on our website. We continue to offer curbside pickup and shipping for your safety and convenience. If you would like a personalized online shopping experience, we can schedule to Zoom with you.Thanks for being part of our flock, we'll keep you in stitches!The Wild Ewes
